This remains a key textbook in Sociology of Education studies within undergraduate and postgraduate studies. The authors continue to increase understandings of the complexity of educational sociology in domestic and international contexts. Boronski and Hassan should be praised again for this undertaking and the second edition is both necessary and welcome.
This is a superb textbook that is engaging, clearly written and well-structured with the student reader firmly in mind. Wide-ranging in scope, it is steeped in the scholarly literature, situating the study and concerns of education within a rich, dynamic and up-to-date sociological context. This is a must-read for students and lecturers alike.
Great book. Really useful as an educator with some interesting information for undergraduates. Too specific to education rather that sociology and education for midwives. Absolutely fabulous book for MSc Education or other education courses.
This is a brilliant book about sociology of education. It helped my students to understand key terms in sociology and in supporting children in digesting knowledge.
I use the book in my own research and in the reading list for socilogy of education.
